MAHARISHI VEDIC HEALTH SPAS
MAHARISHI DAY SPAS


INTRODUCTION

Day Spa Concept

In order to immediately offer to the public our wellness and rejuvenation
programs, which will eventually be offered in our Peace Palaces, we will be
opening Day Spas in hotels, malls, shopping centers, office space or in a rented
house that is zoned for commercial use.



2
Our Day Spas will not function as medical facilities. A doctor or a vaidya will not
be involved with our Day Spas. Guests will select their own treatments from a
menu of spa treatments that are beneficial for all body types. Invasive
treatments, such as nasya and basti, will not be offered in the context of our Day
Spas.

All those with more serious health concerns should be referred to our two
Maharishi Vedic Health Centers at The Raj and Lancaster, MA.


LEGAL ENTITY
The Global Country of World Peace will be the entity renting the Day Spa
facility. MVED (Maharishi Vedic Education Development Corp.) will be the entity
taking in revenue and hiring employees.


LEASING SPACE FOR THE DAY SPA
Before signing any rental agreement or contract, please read the section on Local
Zoning and Codes.

Hotel Space
There are two options for our Day Spa space in a hotel setting. One is to lease the
already existing spa facility within a hotel, the other is to simply rent hotel rooms
and convert them to treatment rooms.

We want to negotiate as low a price as possible for our hotel space. The
following points will be useful in our negotiations:
1) Since spas are now popular amenities in hotels, those hotels that do not
have a spa might be happy to have us come in and create one for them.
The fact that the hotel could have a spa amenity without having to invest
their own money may inspire them to give us the space for free or at a
greatly discounted price
2) Because we have famous destination spas (Lancaster Maharishi Vedic
Health Center and The Raj, Maharishi Vedic Health Center) hotel guests
will recognize our name as a high quality spa This will reflect well on the
hotel.. Be sure to have the hotel management go to our websites
www.lancasterhealth.com and www.theraj.com.
3) We can provide additional services for their hotel guests such as lectures
on executive health to their corporate conference clients.
4) We can also help promote business in the hotel restaurant by
encouraging our spa guests to enjoy a spa lunch before or after their
treatments.
When you are negotiating the lease contract, be sure to emphasize all these
points.

Three to five hotel rooms would provide a basic, minimal Day Spa. Those three
to five rooms would include 2-3 treatment rooms, 1 office /storage room, and 1
reception /waiting area where books, knowledge, and MAPI herbs can be
displayed. The last two rooms could be combined. For a larger Day Spa


3
operation we would just add more treatments rooms. We can start out with a
few rooms and then take more hotel rooms as business increases.

The size of the treatment rooms should be a minimum of 9 feet by 12 feet. We
prefer smaller hotel rooms rather than large, spacious hotel rooms. It would
also be ideal if the treatment rooms were all next to each other in a quiet area,
and if the windows in each room could be opened. Once-a-day cleaning service
should be included in the lease price of the rooms.

OTHER POSSIBLE RENTAL FACILITIES FOR A DAY SPA include:
1) Mall Space , Shopping Centers, Lifestyle Centers. Since malls can be very
expensive, we could take a very small space with excellent exposure and
use that space as our reception area. The space in which we actually give
treatment could be located elsewhere in a less visible, less expensive area
of the mall.(sometimes there is space where the public rarely goes)
2) A rented house or apartment is also a possibility.. With a house or an
apartment we have private bathrooms and showers, but zoning would
need to be commercial zoning.
3) Office space could also work. Ideally we would want our own bathrooms
and shower facilities in whatever space we have.

There are ways in which we could provide some of our Day Spa treatments
without shower facilities, if we had no other options. Please note that for a
Day Spa we do not need a kitchen, nor do we need a washer/dryer. WE DO
NEED ACCESS TO A UTILITY SINK IN WHICH EQUIPMENT AND POTS
CAN BE WASHED.

LOCAL ZONING AND CODES and

RULES AND REGULATIONS REGARDING MASSAGE AND FACIALS

Before signing any rental agreement or contract, please verify that the property
has proper zoning to allow Day Spa activities. Zoning rules can vary greatly
within a city, so be sure to get this information for each property under
consideration.

Be sure to check with the Code Enforcement officer at your local police station.
They will inform you of all codes, which you must meet, and all licenses which
you must obtain in order to open a Day Spa. These could include:

Zoning
Fire Codes
Health Codes
Massage Establishment License
Business License - we will need to register our corporation with the
Secretary of State and thereby receive an employer ID # also known as an
EIN
The required employment of Licensed Massage Therapists (for all body
work) and Licensed Aesthetician (for facials)


4
Workmans Compensation Insurance (Most likely this will be taken care
of by MVED)
General and Professional Liability Insurance: MVED will provide general
liability insurance once you inform the Raja Domain Administrative Office
(Charlie in Lexington). We will ask the LMTs to have their own
professional liability insurance.

STAFF

A Day Spa can be started with a minimum of:

1 full time General Manager

4 fulltime technicians (2 men and 2 ladies). For the 8 am to 3 pm shift
4 full time technicians (2 men and 2 ladies) For the 3 pm to 8 pm shift
more technicians will be needed if you are open 7 days a week
(See section on Hiring and Training Technicians)

Cleaning Service (if not provided by hotel)

Outside Laundry Service: The outside laundry service is necessary because of the
fire hazard involved in washing, drying and storing oily linen.

This minimal staff requirement would be adequate in a start up situation. The
Day Spa staff could in time expand as needed.


HIRING AND TRAINING TECHNICIANS

Because many states require those giving massage to be Licensed Massage
Therapists we may need to hire non-meditators as our technicians. It should be
easy to find Licensed Massage Therapists by posting a notice at local massage
schools. The following are some basic points to consider when hiring
technicians.

HIRING Licensed Massage Therapists should meet the following
qualifications:
No previous experience giving Ayur-Veda treatments
(unless Maharishi Ayur-Veda)
No previous experience with Reiki is ideal, but if they are
willing to stop practicing it we could consider them
Good hygiene, nice appearance, friendly, simple
Willing to sign non-compete, non-disclosure agreement
While we cannot make learning TM a job requirement, it
would be good if they learned TM.
We require that all LMTs that we hire have their own
professional liability insurance.

Important Policy to Disclose to All Applicants


5
We want to inform all applicants that our policy is that men
provide massage for men guests, and ladies provide
massage for our lady guests. (This is important for the
applicants to know because it will impact the amount of
work a man technician will have versus a lady, since more
ladies frequent spas than men it could be that our lady LMTs
will be given more work and therefore will receive more
gratuity than the male LMTs. It is important to tell them
now so that this does not become an issue later).

WAGES * We want to hire our technicians full time for 30 hours a
week @
$15/hr or less. Do not feel that you need to offer the going
rate Most LMTs are so enthusiastic about being involved with
such profound knowledge that they are willing to take less than what other
beauty-salon spas are offering them. Remember that beauty-salon spas make
up the majority of job opportunities available to LMTs. The LMTs are thrilled to
be involved with us and appreciate our need to reduce our expenses in our start
up phase.

TRAINING
When you are ready to begin training your LMTs please
request training materials and schedule from the
HealthSpaOffice@aol.com


CREATING A DAY SPA ENVIRONMENT:

Flooring:

In the case that we are renting hotel rooms for our Day Spa, one flooring option
would be to have the carpet in the room removed and stored. In that way, we
can put down an in expensive vinyl flooring or carpeting that could be removed
when we move our spa into our Peace Palace. At that point, the hotel could
reinstall the original carpet.

We could also cover the existing carpet with plastic, and then cover that with an
inexpensive indoor/outdoor carpet from Menards or Home Depot. This has
been tried before and works very well and is very simple and inexpensive.

You can also use inexpensive area rugs on top of vinyl or on top of carpet. The
area rugs can be removed and shampooed frequently, and replaced easily. While
carpet does seem less practical and more difficult to keep clean, it provides a
warmer, cozier feeling than vinyl flooring. (Be sure to put plastic under the area
rug if the area rug sits on top of carpeting, in order to keep the underlying carpet
from getting oily)

We just noticed in the Sky Mall Catalogue (1-800-759-6255 or www.skymall.com)
there is a nice product that can be rolled onto your garage to save it from oil. It


6
was quite inexpensive and could be used for our purposes. The name of the item
is car pad and comes in several sizes from 7.4 x 14 ( item #255811a $119) to 9
x 22 (item #2255816a $199) with other choices in between these sizes. This pad
could be used over existing carpeting or any other type of floor.

Lighting

Sconces with low wattage light bulbs, or floor lamps with low wattage light bulbs create
a quiet, settled feeling.

Ambiance

Warm, soft colors, low lights, aroma oils and beautiful Gandharva flute music
will all contribute to a Day Spa atmosphere.

Instructions For Abyhanga Table Assembly
Instructions For Wege PK Table and System

Burner Cleaning
It is essential to the proper functioning and safety of your burners that they be cleaned
after each treatment. Oil left on and around the heating element creates a serious fire
hazard.
Cleaning procedure:
a. After each Pizi or Shiro thoroughly wipe the oil off of the burner element. It is best
to do this before you begin cleaning the table because it allows time to heat the element
to burn off any oil residue left after thoroughly wiping the element with a towel.
Turn burner on high and open window if necessary to allow smoke to leave the room.
Close the treatment room door if there are smoke alarms outside of the treatment
room. After the oil is burned off turn the burner off. Never leave the treatment room
with a burner on.
b. Keep a small stiff brush in the treatment room to clean the Pinda residue from the
burner knob after each treatment.

Procedure for Pump Assembly
1. With a standard flat screwdriver remove the protective filter from the bottom of
the pump.
2. With the pump sitting on its top and the electrical cord and the pump stem
pointing toward you remove the 3 Phillips head screws holding the stem.
3. Turn the stem clockwise 1 screw hole. Be sure that the gasket is lined up properly
under the stem assembly and replace the 3 Phillips head screws. Take care not to
cross thread the screws when replacing them. Do not over tighten the screws.
The stem should now be pointing approximately to your left.
4. Replace the protective filter over the stem assembly.


12
5. Thread the 1/4" brass 90
0
elbow onto the plastic stem (being careful not to cross
thread and hand tighten.
6. Thread 1/4" x 2" brass nipple into 1/4" elbow and hand tighten.
7. Thread 1/4" female to 1/2" male brass adapter onto 2" nipple and hand tighten.
8. Thread black plastic disconnect onto 1/2" male brass adapter.
9. If you need to reorder , please call US Plastic 800-537-9724 and request their
catalog. You will need to order the following items: Tubing = #59018 (1/2"Inner
diameter, 11/16"Outer diameter) Fittings = #30531 (hose shank coupler); #30507
(female adapter); #62017 (nylon male nipples); #64119 (equal angle barbed "Y").
Pumps can be ordered from Graingers 319-391-6015.

Hose Assembly
1. With a pair of scissors or a utility knife cut 2 pieces of 1/2" I.D. x 11/16" O.D.,
vinyl tubing 9' long and 2 pieces 2" long and set aside.
2. Take one 1/2' brass gas fitting threaded and install in each end one 1/2" white
nylon male nipples - barbed one end - threaded other side. Tighten with channel
locks or crescent wrench.
3. On the barbed end of each adapter install the 1/2" x 2" vinyl tubing. Secure with a
stainless steel hose clamps.
4. On the in-flow side (direction of oil flow) side of above assembly attach one
quick disconnect black plastic fitting (1/2" female adapter) and secure with a
stainless steel hose clamp.
5. To other end of above assembly attach 7/16" to 9/16" equal angle barbed "Y"
connector and secure with a stainless steel hose clamp.
6. Attach the two 9' pieces of vinyl hose to the "Y" connector and secure each with a
stainless steel hose clamp.
Additional Information on Pumps for Shirodhara Treatment
1. The pizi pump creates too strong a flow, filling the shiro bowl to overflowing.
2. A supplier for a quiet, smaller pump for shirodhara has not yet been located.
3. Techs may prefer to give the shiro treatment manually.
4. As soon as a supplier is found for the appropriate pump, you will be informed. If
you locate the appropriate pump, please inform Finlay at the Raj (515) 472-9580,
ext. 469.


13

Pizichili Set-Up
1. Place Pizi oil in a 2 gallon stainless pan. Fill within 2" of top.
2. Place a vegetable steamer with the legs removed in the bottom of above pan. It
is critical that the steamer be used at all times to avoid destroying your Pizi
pump. Pre-heat oil to approximately 110
0
F. Place the pan on the burner.
3. Clamp the hose assembly and pump together by placing the pump on the floor
with the male adapter toward you. Take the hose assembly and connect it to the
pump. The adjusting valve on the gas fitting should be facing toward you.
4. Grasp the assembly just above the gas valve and place the pump in the oil. Be
sure that oil level is low enough to prevent oil from overflowing when pump is
submersed in the oil.
5. Slide the pan and burner under the stainless steel funnel and hook hoses on
appropriate locations on table.
6. Place one large strainer (1) small strainer directly under stainless steel funnel.
This will collect hair and keep it from getting into the pump blades.
7. It is best to pre-heat the oil, but if you are unable to do so, you can heat the oil
while you are doing your Abhyanga.
8. It is advisable to have approximately 1 quart of Pizi oil in a Shiro pan in the
treatment room in case your oil gets too low in your Pizi pan. If it is necessary to
add oil, add a small amount at a time so that the Pizi oil temperature does not
drop significantly.
9. It will also be necessary to adjust the oil flow through the tubes with the valve on
the gas fitting. If the flow is too great this oil will not heat up adequately. If it is
too slow there will not be enough oil on your guest.
10. It is imperative that you never have the Pizi oil burner on when you are out of
the room.
Swedana Setup
1. Center top hole: Holes are not always lined up properly, therefore poke holes in
straps as needed.
2. Would be better to have a temperature gauge. Temperature gauge is not
included in package even though it is referred to in instructions.
3. Cloth should not come down on the neck.


14
4. Space blanket makes it too hot so be very careful using it. Maybe only in a cold
room or, for safety's sake, avoid using it.
5. Home deep-fat fryers have had handles cut off, resulting in sharp, ragged edges
which need to be filed down so they wont tear the tube that slips over the unit.
6. Fan should point upward (all the way).
7. Cover shins and feet with a light cloth.

Instructions for Abhyanga Table Assembly
Assemble the 4 side panels:
1. Two sides have metal brackets on them.
2. Do not tighten up screws until the legs are attached.
3. Use the square drive bit provided to tighten.

Install the 4 legs:
1. The legs are in two sets, left and right legs for each side of table.
2. The small hole at the bottom of each leg should face out to the sides of the table.
These holes are for the leg lifter brackets.
3. Tighten the side panel screws and then the 8 leg nuts.

Install the leg lifter on one end of the table:
1. The end opposite of the large hole in the tabletop
2. Use a lag bolt with washer for each leg.

Install table top:
1. Screw rails on the underside of the table to the panel sides.
2. The foot of the table is at the leg lifter end.

Install Shirodhara pole

Install stainless steel funnel:
1. Funnel is shipped separately.
2. Slide in rails and then slightly rotate funnel.
3. You may want to caulk around the outside top of the funnel to make it
permanent and to prevent any leaking.

Keep crate and all packing materials in storage. Do not throw crates away.


15

Additional Instructions for Wege System (PK table) :
Pizichili:
1. Clothes covering the table which catch all the oil need to be 2" longer therefore
all slack should be pulled to the bottom (where drain is) and Velcro should be
moved an inch (out of position) toward the back (bottom, where drain is).

2. Use clamps to adjust area where oil is collected, so it drains properly (and not
over the edge onto the floor).
3. Follow directions start pizi oil at 68
o
- 72
o,
not less and not more.

Heating System:
1. Must be used properly.
2. Straighten out tubing; pull gently on each connection to make sure the tubes are
on tight , especially on the white domes (flow regulators)
3. If tubing comes off of pump, then you must cut off an inch of tubing and then re-
attach the tubing
4. Main Problem: Cut steel tips (steel tubing) off at the very start of the system .
Then clamp filter material over the tubing.
5. To avoid a suction lock, cut two triangles into end of tube (where you took away
steel tubes).
6. Keep tubes straight and unkinked.
7. Shirodhara tubes - one with two white domes (flow regulators) plus temperature
gauge. Follow directions on how to set up temperature gauge - watch to make
sure it holds, otherwise it will spill oil.


LINEN/LAUNDRY

You will need to have the following items for each patient for every treatment
given. Order your linen accordingly.

Inventory List For Linens
1 wash cloth
4 hand towels, used during treatment
4 medium-sized towels, used during treatment


16
2 bath towels, for use after shower
1 bath mat
2 sheets (3 if you put one over the abhyanga table)
1 pillow case

The cost of laundering is approximately $3.00$4.00 per patient per treatment.
A clinic does not need to purchase linens. A laundry service should supply,
launder, replace, pick-up, and deliver all linens for this price.

Important: Do not do clinic laundry in your facility. It is a potential fire hazard
as sesame oil fumes are extremely volatile.




17
DRAIN CARE

Due to the oil and hair build-up in the drains, resulting from our Spa treatments, the
following procedures are recommended for drain care in your clinic facility.

1. Place stainless steel screen over all shower drains (to keep hair from going down the
drain).

2. Three times a week, use Liquid Plumber professional strength Enzyme Build-Up
Remover. Last thing of the day pour it in the drains and leave it in overnight. Another
excellent product is called MICRODYNE, by Misco International. This product will not
corrode or damage pipes, and yet is highly effective in keeping drains clear.

3. Purchase a Drain Snake (approx $12.00) to clean out drain traps once a month.

AUTHORIZATION

Please take a moment to carefully read the following information and
sign where indicated. If you have a specific medical condition or
specific symptoms where massage/bodywork/skin care may be
contraindicated, a referral from your primary care provider may be
required prior to service being provided.

I understand that the massage/bodywork/skin care I receive is
provided for the basic purpose of relaxation and relief of muscular
tension. If I experience any pain or discomfort during this session, I
will immediately inform the practitioner so that the pressure and/or
strokes and/or products used may be adjusted to my level of
comfort. I further understand that massage/bodywork/skin care
should not be construed as a substitute for medical examination,
diagnosis of treatment and that I should see a physician, chiropractor
or other qualified medical specialist for any mental or physical
ailment that I am aware of. I understand that
massage/bodywork/skin care practitioners are not qualified to
perform spinal or skeletal adjustments, diagnose, prescribe or treat
any physical or mental illness and that nothing said in the course of
the session should be construed as such. Because
massage/bodywork/skin care should not be performed under
certain medical conditions, I affirm that I have stated all my known-
medical conditions and answered all questions honestly. I agree to
keep the practitioner updated as to any changes in my medical profile
and understand that there shall be no liability on the practitioner or
on the Maharishi Vedic Health Spas part should I forget to do so.

By signing this document, I acknowledge that I have been informed,
fully understand and I accept responsibility for my health and any
resultant injury or mishap that may affect my well-being or health in
any way. I hold harmless of any responsibility the massage therapist,
aesthetician, facility or persons involved with this
massage/bodywork/skin care program.

the ability to change the treatment room

equipment from your clinic revenues. If you have any questions call Finlay at The Raj
